South African DJ and music producer, Heavy K opens up on his poor background, and how he overcame poverty.
The South African musician gave people a glimpse into the poor life he lived growing up.
“I come from a very poor family. My parents had so much love for me. Even when my mother was still alive, she loved me. We are a family of four, when we ate, I would see that on my mother’s plate there would not be meat while the three of us would have meat. I would ask her why she didn’t have meat and she would say she didn’t eat meat,” he told TshishaLIVE.
However, the whole process gave him the strength to pursue success, which he has now achieved.
“It killed me inside but I am a positive person and when my mother told me that it gave me more power to chase my dreams.”
